This was a fantastic show. I was there and grooving hard, and appreciate having the opportunity to listen to it again and again.
One request? Track 2 isn't Deal, it's Mexicali...as is Track 3. Is there any way to let that Deal come down?

'Twas a great evening. As much as I miss the old Higher Ground, the new venue is a great dance space. And the boys (and girl) clearly love playing here, and the audience was giving it right back all night. First set highlights were the hair-raising China>Rider and a long and jammed-out Playin'. Plus all the great '72 Jerry tunes. Second set - a nice standalone He's gone, '72 style, then a long and winding Truck>Other One> Sing Me Back Home. A happy hippie dancing near me was hoping, praying for a Half Step, about which I was skeptical, since it was at the time a brand new tune (we pretty much had the time frame dialed in to early fall '72. And then they rolled it out. Nice recording, thanks for taping - it really sounds like the room. And shit, that Danny Healy sure can mix it. Wonder where he learned that?
